I am so excited about this challenge! We are on a tight budget right now, but I love my projects AND there's a new Hobby Lobby in town. What's a DIY girl to do??

I've challenged myself to do a project a week for the next six weeks using only the supplies I have on hand. I am going to allow one trip to the Goodwill for 2 or three mens shirts for one project, but thats's it! Haha. It should only cost me a few bucks so, in my cheater mind, does't count. Right?

I started last week and while it might not seem like a big deal to most people, it was huge to me. I have been putting off hanging a bunch or pictures back on our walls after painting. I sucked it up and got it done. Well, kind of. There are still more to hang, but the point is, I got the important ones done. Yeah, let's go with that.

I returned Wade's favorite RSO awards and rank patches to the wall by the front door (pic,bottom right hand corner). It was a challenge because I wanted them all in a perfect rectangle and at a good height. I am very pleased with how it turned out. In the loft, I allowed Wade's Adam Corolla signed poster to grace the TV wall (pic, top right hand corner). Haha. Also in the loft (pic, left), I recovered some frames from the garage and hung the girls school awards from last school year. I always want them to be reminded that hard work pays off and doesn't go unnoticed.

Overall, I am happy with the status of the pictures right now. I'm sure there will be more picture hanging in the next six weeks.

Since, I am not buying supplies for projects, I am somewhat limited in what I can do. I have plans to make some aprons, redo a canvas we used to have hanging in our family room, repurpose some frames and make them pretty so I won't mind them hanging on the walls (haha), sew new pillow covers for the living room couch, and more.

Keep checking back over the next five weeks to see what I've managed to do without spending money on crafting/DIY supplies. It's going to be fun!
